    1.What does Gen Nkunda's arrest mean?
    2.Why has Rwanda turned on Gen Nkunda?
    3.What happens next?
    4.What is the conflict about?
    The origins of the conflict lie across the border in Rwanda and the genocide committed there in 1994.
    Some of the extremist Hutu militias responsible crossed the border into what is now DR Congo.
    Rwanda, now run by the Tutsi force which ended the genocide, has twice invaded its much larger neighbour, saying it wants to wipe out the Hutu militias.
    Gen Nkunda has always claimed he was protecting Congolese Tutsis from attacks by the FDLR.
    But all sides have also been accused of plundering eastern DR Congo's rich mineral resources - gold, diamonds, tin and coltan, used in mobile phones.

    5. Je ndoa ya Kabila(DR Congo) na Kagame(Rwanda) itadumu or Rwanda ipo after something?
    Analysts point out that Rwandan troops spent four years in DR Congo and failed to wipe out the FDLR, which has also resisted more recent attempts by the Congolese army, Gen Nkunda's forces and UN peacekeepers to disarm them.

    Please have your say.
